I stumbled upon this building while exploring the streets of Daegu, South Korea. I was desperately searching for something to satisfy my sweet tooth when I saw it. It was love at first sight. Everything was perfect, from the vibrant azure trim to the gigantic windows, little wreaths hanging on the doors, and the scooter parked in the front. The design is spectacular. It looks old, but new at the same time. The light fixtures and flower boxes give it a charming, warm and inviting appearance. And to make a great thing even better, it’s a bakery! I stepped inside and was welcomed with the intoxicating smells of freshly-made espresso, sugary confections, and just-out-of-oven bread. The shop had enough of cakes, tarts, and snacks to satisfy any craving. I devoured a chocolate croissant and a cappuccino. Both were very tasty.
This little bake shop is just a few blocks (maybe three) from the most popular area of downtown Daegu. Le Pouldu (that’s what it’s called) is still surrounded by stores, restaurants, and coffee shops, just not on the main street. It’s just across the road from an ABC Mart and next to T World (for directions click here). If you’re in the area, I definitely recommend it. It’s got a cozy atmosphere and the baked goods are DELICIOUS. And there are savory items too if you’re not into sweets.
